I Have Tasted The Stars

I Have Tasted the Stars

I'm quite sure that before I was born,
I floated in space, alone and untethered.
I turned somersaults around the sun
it's not as hot as it looks
played leapfrog with asteroids,
and chased comets across the universe.
I have tasted the stars
and sipped moonlight.
A nebula was my pillow,
and sleep
oh, the innocent sleep
so sweetly in space.
I danced on Saturn's rings,
wild and free, uninhibited
because nobody's watching in space.
And I sang.
